Manchester United are closing in on the signing of Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon, according to reports in Spain.

Spanish outlet Sport, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that the Red Devils look set to make the 24-year-old their third signing of the summer after having had a £62m bid accepted by Sporting Lisbon.

Manchester United have been heavily linked with a move to sign the midfielder throughout the summer transfer window and the Red Devils are set to land their man, if the latest reports are to be believed.

It is claimed in the same story that Fernandes is now set to travel to Manchester to undergo a medical ahead of his proposed transfer to the Premier League club.

Manchester United have been linked with a number of midfielders this summer following the departure of Ander Herrera on a free transfer to Paris Saint-Germain.

The Red Devils have officially signed two new players this summer after having concluded deals for Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been tasked with steering Manchester United back into the top four next season after they finished in sixth place and without a trophy last term.
